A loan helped to buy insecticide and fertilizer and thereby have good production.


Leandro Rodrigo's story

Leandro Rodrigo is 68 years old. He's in a common-law relationship and has 5 children, all now legal adults. His partner is a housewife. They live in Portoviejo, a place with hard-working people dedicated to farm work, and a place very much affected by Covid-19.

He is a hard-working man who looks for a way to earn his resources and, with them, to get his family ahead, and despite the fact that things are very difficult with this pandemic, he continues fighting.

He works in agriculture. He has corn and plantain crops. He uses many parcels where he grows these products, which he later sells to merchants who come to this place to carry them to different markets in the province.

This loan is for buying insecticides and fertilizers and thereby having good production.
